About the event
The term "Separation Anxiety" had never been so widespread as it has been during pandemic. But is it really Separation Anxiety that everybody is talking about? Is that dog who vocalizes while being left home alone for the first time after lock down actually experiencing Separation Anxiety? Or could it be something else? During this one-hour talk Moira will highlight the variety of issues that could be happening when a dog reacts while home alone, and will describe the crucial components of assessing and finding out what is truly going on so it can be successfully addressed.
